Yesterday, we were part of something that I never thought we, the United States, would even be considering in this nation:
This is something out of 1984 or other, previously considered works of fiction… soon to be a terrible reality?
Can we really be talking about this in public like some discussion about another waste of Tax money?
We here in the United States are really considering talking about 1 Man having the self issued authority to decide on his own to arrest a person without charges for an unlimited time? To keep someone locked up ostensibly “forever” because he says it’s what this lone person wants? Yes, that’s the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) This same act that “Mr. Obama” stated he did not want but signed it into law anyway…. Remember?
Now, after an outstanding example of the American filibuster by Senator Rand Paul, are we now talking about that same Man, “Mr. Obama”, the President, or any President (regardless of Party) having the self issued authority to kill anyone, anywhere in the world, because he says so? Why are we even talking about this and no, it’s not just in a war zone, overseas, but right here in the United States of America! If you are sitting in a restaurant, or at home, doing nothing, you can be “droned” without warning, without constitutional due process, without any shred of evidence.
This is not some war torn hell hole where thousands of people are plotting against us every single day!
this is the United States of America, where the constitution and the rule of law and due process reigns, or does it?
So, it actually took a 13 hour filibuster to get a simple declaration from the Attorney General that the President does not have the right to kill anyone in the US using a drone strike? The fact that the subject is even being discussed is an example, a terrible example of how far our country has fallen from freedom toward tyranny!
So with this in mind every American had better understand the immense importance of their right to Keep and bear arms…. Without those arms, and with the present mentality that would even consider the idea within the US that this 1 Man has the right to be Judge, Jury and Executioner over millions of Americans is a tragedy waiting to happen, waiting to explode in our very faces.
Does anyone think that Mr. Obama will hesitate to use a “droning” to stop those Americans, (and there will be millions) that refuse to disarm? Americans who refuse will be called “domestic terrorists” (DT’s) and there won’t be any place to hide, when an intel/attack platform is 10,000 feet above you, circling “on Station” for hours and even days….
He now has everything he needs:
- The NDAA: unlimited Arrest authority
- 2A refusal to disarm: Domestic Terrorists (DT’s)
- Untouchable platform: Drones of all types
Wake up America…. it might already be too late!
